Company Culture

We do all work as a team. The downside is that people, especially women, can be cliquish and passive aggressive towards coworkers they do not like.

Teamwork

They do, but it depends on the group of people. We all pull together, no questions, when a patient is not doing well or having a sudden event.

Freedom to work independently

You have to be the sort of person who plunges into your day and not in frequent need of support. There are times we all need it, of course, and it’s provided.

Gender Equality

I don’t know the percentages of men and women, but hospital management and staffing has been consistently women. I’ve never seen discouragement for gender reasons.

Attitude towards older colleagues

At 40, I am not treated any different as an employee.

Career Development

There are, but I do not use them.

Environmental Friendliness

It is put to our attention regularly.

Work-Life Balance

We have many things offered to help balance work and home

Company Image

Who wouldn’t be proud to work at the 3rd Best children’s hospital in the country?

Handicapped Accessibility

Most things are handicapped accessible, but there are a few places which could be designed better. People who are able to get around with no help, need more automatic doors.

Challenging Work

I do not care for patients directly, but “pushing the paper” and getting the information you need can be a challenge. A job in PICU is difficult at times, no matter your job title.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very accepting of other cultures, LGBTQ, proper understanding of needs of religion that are not commonly staffed for.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I cannot think of anything general to be worked on. Overall, I like working here. I don’t dread going to work. But no place is ever perfect.

What I like about the company

We all pull together when something major is going on, whether on the job or something more personal (birth, death, wedding, etc.) It makes for a lot of bonding and understanding within groups. The nursing groups can be especially close.

What I dislike about the company

Making heavy expenditures while cutting benefits we formerly had. We used to get 100% pay for health leave of absence, now it’s 65%, with 35% supplemental pay in another policy. This costs extra to us, and you may not get approved for it, even you are approved for initial medical disability. It’s not something anyone wants to deal with at a time of crisis for yourself.

Freedom to work independently

Department/division dependent but largely very autonomous

Internal Communication

Daily email communication with all employees tailored to your job

Gender Equality

Wonderful support for working mothers!

Career Development

Getting even better as they hold focus groups with employees to better understand our roles

Overall compensation for your work

Making much more than I would elsewhere in my field

Work-Life Balance

Department/division dependent but overall mission is to support employees in living a healthy lifestyle and enjoying their work

Company Image

We do amazing things for amazing people!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better support for working from home and flexible hours. Right now the official policy is that it is up to each division to decide on an individual basis, but a statement of general support for working from home and/or keeping flexible hours whenever possible would be helpful.

What I like about the company

I have always felt supported, encouraged and valued by everyone here, from the CEO to the Maintenance staff and everyone in between. We are all working to improve outcomes for children and the passion is infectious. I have no direct patient contact, yet I feel like I am making a difference and am part of something much bigger than myself.

What I dislike about the company

I wish they would do better at differentiating between clinical and research operations. Some of the policies that make sense for clinicians are restrictive on the research side and vice versa. That being said, the recent initiative to review all positions in the hospital to ensure all job titles are reflective of the work being done, may lead to better distinction between clinical and research.

Internal Communication

Too much back tracking with procedures and not be notified of viable information at times and it makes us look incompetent.

Office / Work Environment

Certain satellites are lacking in comfortable working environments.

Environmental Friendliness

There could be improvements.

Challenging Work

I'm a glorified phlebotomist when is should be a Medical Laboratory Technician. Not much in the way of technical at all.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Our CEO is more of a business person rather than a medical person, and therefore he builds and builds and builds and makes cut backs that effect the very employees that have led to the success of the company. They don't match your 403b, the insurance premiums are higher, they have cut back on contributions towards an HSA, they tried taking away our EIB, maked promises that keep going out farther and farther into the future, that one would never see it in well past their retirement....the list can go on and on. The company is definitely not the company that it was when I was first hired and I feel that in some regard, it is our CEO. He might need to go.

What I like about the company

The satelitte that I work for is convenient for where I live. My coworkers are nice and down to earth and we support each other.

What I dislike about the company

I feel like there are way too many meetings that take people away from sites that are already short staffed and they make decisions without having proper representation that effect the very department that they are making decisions about. They need people with the experience sitting in on these meetings so that they can get their input on these decisions that could be effecting the very department in which they work.
